This dynamic presentation on the Minoan and Mycenaean Civilizations provides visuals, guided notes, and reflection questions to keep your students engaged for the entire lesson.
The Minoan and Mycenaean civilizations existed in a time that the Greeks called the heroic age, a time when Achilles fought Hector and when Heracles completed his twelve labours.
